Magical fairies are cherished by adults and children alike. We have found a selection of the most enchanting fairy jigsaw puzzles, ready for you to piece the magic together.
The origins of Fairy folklore date all the way back to the 12th century from writings by Gervase of Tilbury, an English scholar and canon lawyer. Interest in fairies greatly increased during the Victorian era. Fairies have often been used in art and were painted by famous artists such as Joseph Noel Paton, Edwin Landseer and they even influenced the Pre-Raphelite Brotherhood. They also have a part to play in literature, and not just fairy tales, from William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to James. M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan”.
It is hardly surprising that we still appreciate these beautiful magical beings when we have grown up. Fairies have an important role to play in our childhood, from the tooth fairy who visits in the night whilst we sleep and exchanges a treat for one of our fallen milk teeth, to the fairy who sits on top of the Christmas tree.
